10 Years of ReachAnother

ReachAnother’s Annual Gala was a roaring success!

ReachAnother’s Annual “Evening for Ethiopia” Gala was a HUGE success thanks to the generous contributions of our friends and supporters—more than $100,000! Your charitable giving will change the lives of many children (and their families), who face the challenges of spina bifida and hydrocephalus every day in Ethiopia. 
 
We were beyond thrilled to gather (safely) in-person and celebrate ReachAnother’s accomplishments of the past year and share exciting opportunities to prevent neural tube defects through food fortification with folic acid. Thank you to everyone for making ReachAnother’s “Evening for Ethiopia” a special night to remember!
